EPL: Mourinho reveals why Man United didn’t win Arsenal, hails 5 players


Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, has named players that helped his side get 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday

Jesse Lingard’s strike immediately after an own goal from Marcos Rojo rescued a point for United.

Mourinho praised the ‘soul’ and ‘attitude’ of his players after the game.

The Portuguese also said they would have won the match but for mistakes and misses the players made.

Mourinho told BT Sport, “We shoot ourselves so many times during the season. That is really difficult.

“Big soul by the players, fantastic attitude from the first minute.

“Many players in difficulties, some good performances, some players in difficulty, [Diogo] Dalot, [Marcos] Rojo, [Matteo] Darmian, [Eric] Bailly, [Chris] Smalling – a brave guy to play with such difficulties – the boys left their souls

“And when sometimes people speak about quality.

“We should win game we made two big mistakes for their goals., we made other mistakes that allowed them to have counter attack situations, easy passes that we lost, easy controls that we lost, things that at high level normally you don’t do it. Our performance is marked by these ups and downs.

“The second goal comes in awful moment for a team that was on top of the game.”

Asked if it was a positive sign that United players were ‘sacrificing’, Mourinho replied, “Yes, positive but there are things I cannot get from them and I cannot say much more than this.

“Big soul, everybody gives everything, that is for sure and that’s a positive feeling.

“I cannot tell you much more I prefer just to say I’m happy with soul commitment bravery I’m really happy with that.”
